Abstract: Teachers are against duplication of efforts and dislike the sideway clerical duties that use up their resources for doing the proper job — enriching their knowledge and giving pastoral care for their students. The duty of marking attendance, entering marks and subsequently producing a global grade is an important link in the chain of school ad- ministration and hence a necessary evil. Today we are in an era enriched by useful technologies and tools that can help in the learning environment. In this paper, an already-existing open-source e-learning software platform is used and manipulated to accommodate the exigencies and specific needs of running a subject department at a post-secondary level in Malta.
